Memorial Day is the unofficial "garden starting" day around these parts and the day I have always begun the garden in years past. But THIS year I thought I would be JohnnyontheSpot and work little by little in the weeks leading up to it. And it worked out really great. (I need only to do a bit more hay mulching and to create a separate pumpkin patch and I will be officially DONE the planting phase until fall!!)
Because I have been regularly working in the garden and getting things planted early, that left Memorial day open for other activities.
Unfortunately for me, instead of normal peoples' "other activities" (like volleyball, swimming, camping out, barbeques, and FUN), I have a husband who wants to WORK all the time so OUR "other activities" are more like: splitting wood, cutting down trees, sawing up logs, home repair, fixing things. Yada Yada Yada.
It is my blessing AND my curse.
Two weekends ago Matt cut down some trees from our woods.
Last weekend those logs were carted off to his Dad's sawmill. Handy to have, his Dad.
And, oh yeah, it was 90+ degrees that day.
They made a few beams, which will hopefully rebuild the barn entrance we had to tear down when we first moved in ...
I *guess* it was worth it.
